Mycofoam main ingredient is mycelium. Mycelium is a natural hydrophobic fungus that can repel water. To prove Mycofoam will be the best alternative as a packaging material, Mycofoam and Styrofoam have a very similar characteristic. It is introduced to the industry that benefits the environment. A huge positive impact to help the society that has high living standard and hazard-free environment nevertheless, allowed Mother Nature to be free from pollution.
Dilution process: By incorporating inert substances (e.g. fillers) and additives that release inert gases, water or Carbon dioxide during decomposition, and dilute the fuel in the solid and gaseous phases so that the lower ignition limit of the gas mixture is not exceeded, e.g. aluminium hydroxide leaving water [26,13,20]. Fire retardation by Chemical action The most significant chemical reactions that interfere with the combustion process take place either in the solid and gaseous phases: Reaction in the gaseous
These are both inorganic and organic. The bulk of dewatered and digested sludge can be used as organic fertilizer or it may be burnt to produce energy. 2.4 Classification of MSW : It is classified as hazardous and non-hazardous. 1..Hazardoous waste : It is waste generated during production or other activities by the society. Hazardous waste posses a potential hazardous to human health or environment when not well managed.
3.2.2 Emissions The principal concerns about emissions and the impact of combustion systems on air quality are in relation to carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide (〖CO〗_2 and CO), small particulates (PM10 and PM2.5; particles smaller than 10 microns and 2.5 microns respectively), oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and sulfur dioxide (〖SO〗_2). 〖CO〗_2 is a greenhouse gas and an inevitable consequence of burning any organic (carbon containing) material. Under conditions of insufficient oxygen supply, or incomplete combustion CO can also be formed as well as fine particles of unburned carbon, or
Some of the things people do cause harm to the health. We cause pollution when we make our water, land, and air dirty. In this topic, you will learn what pollution is, what are different types of pollution, and how does it affect health. Pollution is anything that makes the earth dirty and unhealthy. Water, air,and land are all affected by pollution.There are different types of pollution categorized based on the part of the environment which they affect or result which the particular pollution causes.
This approach may be advantageous since the costs of materials handling and some environmental impacts may be reduced. However, in situ processes may be limited by the ability to control or manipulate the physical and chemical environment during bioremediation. As we all know, in-situ bioremediation consist of bioventing, biostimulation, bioaugmentation, biosparging, fixed biobarriers, phytoremediation, and artificial wetlands. Bioventing is an in-situ treatment which combines an increase of oxygen (O2) and nutrients with vapour extraction. Bioaugmentation refers to the addition of naturally occurring microbes to contaminated materials and sites in order to achieve bioremediation.
The organism used to treat the pollutants are called bioremediators. There are a lot of examples of bioremediation. One of the common examples of bioremediation is phytoremediation. Phytoremediation uses plants to treat the pollution. For example, when there are contamination of metals, solvents or crude oil in static water environment, plants such as mustard plant, hemp and pigweed can be used to treat the pollutant.
WASTE GENERATION Wastes from chemical plant may bring some impacts to the environment and this is a very important aspect to be considered. Therefore, in order to ensure that the wastes produced and discharged to the environment, either to the surface of water or to the air are harmless to the environment and residents that live near the plant, a proper handling of the formation and treatment, as well as the disposal of the waste must be implemented and follows the standards and regulations that had been set by the Malaysian Government. The treatment of chemical plant wastes may sometime be very costly but, it must be prioritized due to its potential impacts on the environment. As for methanol plant that produces 4x105 metric tons per year
Corrosion is the phenomenon of a metal or an alloy to undergo destruction or degradation by its interaction with the surrounding environment. Many structural alloys corrode merely from exposure to moisture in air, but the process can be strongly affected by exposure to certain substances. Corrosion can be concentrated locally to form a pit or crack, or it can extend across a wide area more or less uniformly corroding the
A condition in which in which the quality of air is affected by the presence of chemical, biological or physical substances in the air is called air pollution. The definition of air pollution suggested that air pollution is consists of gases, liquids and solid particles, these substances when present in adequate levels for a significant time and also under specific conditions, tend to affect the human health, human welfare and also cause the damage to environmental sustainability. Air pollution causes ozone depletion, creates smog, acid rain, and other hazardous environmental phenomena. According to---, air pollution can be defined as the presences of harmful chemicals and compounds including biological origin, in the air that they become a serious health risk. In the broader sense the term air pollutants mean those chemicals that have toxic health effects and does not present in the air naturally but they released into the air by through some human activities directly or indirectly.
